Known Issue: Webi calendars only showing 27 days
Greetings Webi World,
I wanted to ensure that people were aware of this issue as it is causing a lot of incidents to come in to Product Support @ SAP.
It was recently discovered that a patch has introduced an issue with the calendar objects that are used by several Webi workflows. It seems that for for months that have 30 days or less, only 27 days will show up in the Calendar picker.
This issue is currently being investigated by our development team and will be released in SAP Note: https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2200522 (Service Market Place login required)
At the time of this writing, there is no solution. This does only affect the HTML viewer and scheduling workflows so you should be able to use Webi Rich Client and the Applet Viewer as a temporary work-around for now.
We were suffering this issue last week but today it does work fine. Do you know why? I have noticed that the support note is no longer available.
It appears this issue was only occurring on the 31st day of the month (client side). Any other day, the calendar shows up fine. So, I don't think there will be an issue again until May 31st.
We do have development looking into this to see about getting a fix out.
I can confirm it happened again on May 31, and went away on June 1. There is now a patch.
Do you have the patch installed?
FYI to all following this: Looks like it is released for the following patch versions:
4.1 SP6 + P6.9
4.1 SP7 + P7.4
4.2 SP2 +P2.1
Some of these have not been released yet but the code fix will be in them.
